In this acclaimed novel that inspired the Academy Award-winning motion picture, Larry McMurtry created two unforgettable characters who won the hearts of readers and moviegoers everywhere: Aurora Greenway and her daughter Emma. Aurora is the kind of woman who makes the whole world orbit around her, including a string of devoted suitors. Widowed and overprotective of her daughter, Aurora adapts at her own pace until life sends two enormous challenges her way: Emma's hasty marriage and subsequent battle with cancer. Terms of Endearment is the Oscar-winning story of a memorable mother and her feisty daughter and their struggle to find the courage and humor to live through life's hazards -- and to love each other as never before.

I loved this book. The characters were relatable and you grew to love them. They were witty and the humor in this book was great.

The book was okay; it didn't quite hold my attention the way the movie did.

This book is really good. It's also a lot different than the movie. There is no astronaut, although there is a general. The character Vernon Dahlart is fleshed out, as is the housekeeper Rosie (and her life).

This book is mainly about Aurora, not Emma.
